Hats on Parade: Displaying Hats in the Home

How often do hats end up in a messy pile tossed on a shelf in the coat closet? That has definitely often been the case in my experience. But showing off a hat collection can look good in the home and will probably keep the hat in good shape for looking better on your head, too:

Whether in a straight and narrow row as in the first pic above or playfully scattered in a grouping alongside framed artwork (image 3), hats can accent a room's decor just like they can top off an outfit. Finally, I had to include the last collection — it's the world's largest cap collection. I love the compact rows of shelves built just for the caps — looks great!

Do you have hats? How do you store them? Would you ever consider keeping them on display?
